A Turn for the Better – Nordic Proposals for Liveable Cities
In May 2016, Uusi Kaupunki Collective’s workshop method and Studio Puisto’s Dream Hotel were invited to the Nordic A turn for the better -exhibition as part of the Romanian Design Week. A turn for the better -exhibition presented five Nordic solutions for creating liveable cities.
“The problems our cities are facing tend to be global. In ‘A Turn for the Better’ we present five proposals from the Nordic countries for how these problems can be solved locally leading to more liveable cities for us all. We hope that the exhibition will inspire to a fruitful conversation between architects and planners from the Nordic countries and their Romanian counterparts as well as the general public attending Romanian Design Week”.
